Fund Overview

Electric Vehicles (EVs) have been proposed and designed for over 20 years, but in the last year or two the EV performance, ecosystem and consumer adoption seems to have accelerated. With 11 vehicle manufacturers plus 18 companies providing critical EV components and infrastructure, this fund offers well-rounded exposure so you can benefit from the EV movement without picking individual stocks. This high-growth fund is only the 4th electric vehicle index fund in the world and includes the likes of Tesla, NIO, Workhorse Group, Blink Charging Co and Toyota. The fund tracks the S&P Kensho Electric Vehicles Index, which is part of the S&P Kensho New Economy Index Series. You can find out more about how the index selects constituents here.

The risk indicator reflects how much the value of the Fund’s assets goes up and down (volatility). A higher risk generally means higher potential returns over time, but more ups and downs along the way. The lowest risk rating doesn’t mean “risk-free” and this risk indicator is not a guarantee of a Fund’s future performance.
